Mediating Environments

Opens Thursday 3rd November 6-9pm. Exhibition continues until Wednesday 23 November

John Wild will be performing at 7.30pm on the opening night

The world beyond the confines of our body is intimately connected to our actions – as much cultural artefact as something wild and other, ‘out there’ – nature and techne vitally expressed through our lives and creations. We continually feed into and are moulded by an interminable flux of co-creative relationships and cycles, reflexive actors who fall in and out of sync with innumerable collectives and circumstances. How we perceive these complex ecologies and the meanings we derive from what we do within them, frames our worldview, subtly affecting how we are subsumed by social fields and evolutionary flows. In this time of accelerating change and spiritual transformation can we come to terms with our uncertain predicament? How to navigate the indescribable, manifold environments in which we are embedded?

Even Salon: Either/Or 

April 30th 2016 7:30 pm (’til late!)

Apiary Studios, Hackney.

In Either/Or the principle of exclusivity undergoes détournement by a diverse range of invited participants. Either celebrate its brutal 2-state logic cutting across a stacked earth, or contest such sovereignty in precipitating each uncanny flip or flop glimpsed struggling against its slitted foreclosure. KISS!! In an evening of unemployable expenditure, from the trauma of the binary to its ontic co-constituency, Either/Or includes talks and performances

Travelodge Easter Mass

Competing images overlaid each other: sections disintegrating into psychedelic digital interference. The channel was undecipherable in any conventional sense, yet somehow compelling. Broken fragments of religious iconography, a cross in the centre, a close up of burning candles, the outline of a figure in ceremonial robes, features morphing in a process of RGB fractal degeneration, geometric disturbances punctured organic forms and revealed a gathered congregation. Fragmented Images obscured the reading of a coherent totality, yet the interference reconstituted pieces into alluring sequences, producing a new whole, possibly a new religion.

Seeing Like an Estate

We drifted estates with our AV receiver auto scanning frequencies, hacking signals from CCTV, punctuating our walk with fugitive images of usually inaccessible viewpoints in an attempt to see like an estate.

Robin Hood Gardens – ANTI-GENTRIFICATION GHOST DANCE’

“Robin Hood Gardens – ANTI-GENTRIFICATION GHOST DANCE’, was constructed from field recordings of electromagnetic emissions, recorded on a drift around Robin Hood Gardens as compulsory purchase orders were being enforced, slowly clearing the estate. This recording represents a brutalist record of one moment in the ongoing clearances hallucinated as an insurrectionary carnival of resistance.

Humans are widely assumed not to have a magnetic sense…However, there is consistent evidence of an influence of geomagnetic fields on the light sensitivity of the human visual system. Moreover, it has been proposed recently that light-sensitive magnetic responses are not only used for directional information, but may also aid visual spatial perception in mammals, by providing a spherical coordinate system for integrating spatial position. (Foley, Gegear & Reppert: 21 June 2011)

Network Noise Drift

Form May to the end of August 2013 John Wild worked with Tatiana Bazzichelli, at transmediale, on a project to map the reSource network of independent technology based art/hacker spaces in the city of Berlin. The mapping project rapidly developed a Schizoid split between a practical Cartesian rationalism and a Psychogeographic abstraction that was resolved by the development of two distinct approaches to mapping the network.
